Race Talk


You may know that I'm teaching a course on race/racism at a local graduate school of social work in Boston. Before the class started I gave them an assignment that I thought I would share with Baha'i Thought readers and see what you have to say.

I'd like you to think of a time where you participated in, or witnessed a really good conversation about race and/or racism. Specifically, you should describe the characteristics that made this such a good conversation.

If you cannot think of a good conversation about race and/or racism to describe
you can describe a bad conversation instead. What made it so bad?

Bring it on readers!
